Design Team Tips With Lizzie Jones

By May 26, 2017General

Today, Lizzie is sharing on her blog some favorite design tips for die cutting around sentiments on your projects:


“Adding a sentiment can sometimes pose a tricky challenge. You may not want to cover up your focal point with a banner or sentiment strip, but stamping directly on the card front doesn’t always work with the design. My solution is simple, die cut around it! On my blog today, I’m sharing my favorite way to add a greeting that doesn’t get in the way and adds a unique detail to my projects. I hope you’ll join me!”
